Donald Trump opened up a Thursday campaign rally by saying he'll accept the results of the presidential election as long as he wins.

"I will totally accept the result of this great and historic presidential election," Trump told supporters in Delaware, Ohio.

He then paused dramatically.

"If I win."

The crowd went wild.

Ed. Note: Whether it was a joke or not remains to be seen. Across this great land, parents will be trying to figure out how to explain this to their children before their soccer games this weekend. - Karoli
